Business Consulting

Business consulting encompasses a fairly broad range of service. Regardless of the service, the goal is to understand the business and the challenges being faced and use experience and proven methods to advise on solutions. These services could lead to marketing solutions, process improvement or a clear path to healthier business culture.

Business Analysis

Business analysis is a research discipline aimed at identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems. Solutions often include a software-systems development component, but may also consist of process improvement, organizational change or strategic planning and policy development.

Industry and Competitive Analysis

Understanding the true position of your company or product within your industry can lead to a variety of conclusions and decisions. This service is a critical component  of other services that we offer, from branding and marketing to technology choices. One outcome of this analysis might be a report on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) that make up a company’s current position in their market.

Business Data Analysis

Analysis of data is a process of inspecting, cleaning, transforming, and modeling data with the goal of discovering useful information, suggesting conclusions, and supporting decision-making. Data analysis has multiple facets and approaches, encompassing diverse techniques under a variety of names, in different business, science, and social science domains.

Process and Workflow Consulting

This service explores the way that work output is being managed, the rules in place that are guiding the output, and may also include a review of the people or teams responsible for the output. The overall goal is to provide recommendations that will clear roadblocks, mitigate risk and bolster the bottom line by making the work process more efficient. This service may also include new training, written procedures, and diagrams that illustrate the desired improvements. Process change and development will always be necessary in a world that is always evolving, so process improvement should become systemic.

Culture and Operations Consulting

This service is similar to Process Consulting, with the main difference being its emphasis on the less tangible aspects of running the business and looking to the human components. One approach is to conduct a survey or interviews with all parties involved in order to establish a baseline of information that will inform specific areas where cultural or operations factors can be improved. The most critical component of culture change and improvement is the active involvement of senior management in the process. Ideally a company has written mission, vision and values statements that are clear to all and adhered to as the norm, and if not, these may be one of the outcomes of this type of consulting.

Project Management Services

The ideal project manager can think conceptually, strategically and tactically virtually at the same time, identifying risks and opportunities at all levels of a project. Grasping the big picture, leading the development of a plan, then managing a team to execute it is the unique purview of this role. Overseeing budget and timeline are key components of the role, but just as important is keeping the team on track with the plan and always having the end goal in mind as decisions are made. Whether it’s part of a bigger project or just the need for a guiding hand, we provide experienced Project Managers who will get the job done.
